White Noise Chord Will Wood

Capo 0 with [C] [G] [F]


VERSE
They paint the walls with colors
That you’re not meant to notice
Beiges and browns, off-whites and grayscales
Fluorescent lights to shine on the eggshell ground
Now you’re lying face down
You blend into the background
Of white noise

VERSE
They fill the halls with tunes you can’t get into your head.
Four-four and dorian, wrote ’em for ignoring ’em.
Yeah, it sorta sounds like a retro top-forty but wrong.
You’re not meant to sing along,
It isn’t that kind of song,
It’s white noise

PRE-CHORUS
But…If you listen closely I swear
To God, I swear.
You can hear the ocean if you
Hold it up to your ear, hear!

CHORUS
White noise…
(If you listen close between the waves.)
White noise…
(You can hear the ocean through your wake.)
White noise…
(If you listen close between the waves.)
White noise…
(You can hear the ocean through your wake.)

SOLO


Check, one-two!

BRIDGE
It’s high-fidelity, lost-list quality.
It’s MP-one, two, three, four, five, a fallacy.
It’s polyphonic the new philharmonic,
With a Juliard doctor and life in the metropolitan.
It’s theoretically dense, it’s impressive.
It’s microtonal, and it challenges Western
Notions of art, it’s post-avant-garde.
It’s going places ‘cuz it comes from the heart.
And it’s personality is a lack of identity,
It makes no statement, but does so quite loudly.
It’s an aesthetic! I mean, an anesthetic.
And it’s an experience for your seventh-sense, yes.
Does it cure cancer? (Yes, it cures cancer!)
WOW! It begs the question just to tell you the answer.
Do you believe in the power of sight?
Well, if you walk the walk, can you talk more–
Shh, quiet.

CHORUS
White noise…
(If you listen close between the waves.)
White noise…
(You can hear the ocean through your wake.)
White noise…
(If you listen close between the waves.)
White noise…
(You can hear the ocean through your wake.)

VERSE
You fill your head with thoughts you find you can’t even feel.
Try to make room in your skull, but it’s full of ’em.
All of the things that you think
And then think about thinking.
I know it’s hard
But they’re not who you are
They’re white noise.
